Politicians, colleagues and friends react to the beheading of South Florida journalist Steven Sotloff

“Here is what they need to understand — Steve Sotloff was a Floridian, but more importantly he was an American. If you attack one American, you are attacking all Americans. Last week President Obama said that his Administration does not at present have a strategy for dealing with ISIS — these immoral evil people. I think I can speak for all Floridians and all Americans when I say that the time for a strategy is now, and part of that strategy needs to include destroying them.” — Gov. Rick Scott
